This is the official web site for Portland's newest gaming convention, NerdCon. We will be gathering for a weekend of role-playing (primarily RPGA and Legends of Erde) and tabletop games. As the time approaches, check our Warhorn site for a schedule and advance game signups.

We will be offering the premiere of the Living Arcanis event Weekend in Freeport.

General discussion of the convention is available at our YahooGroup:

Currently, we are looking for people to commit to running one or more games at the convention. See below for benefits.

Membership costs:

Discounts: One slot = 5 hours. (Note that slots on Warhorn are 2.5 hours for ease of scheduling and will be considered half slots for volunteering purposes.)
Discounts are for the person running the slot, not the friend, relative, etc. of the volunteer.

Register now: online or by snail mail

Why pay in advance?
When the games have been scheduled, those who have already paid will be able to take advantage of our advance registration system. Subsequent to that, members will be enabled to sign up as payment is received.

Volunteer benefits:
Volunteers, including those who run games, will get the first chance to sign up in advance.
